Andy Warhol's final series of paintings, The Last Supper, was inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s world-famous masterpiece of the same title.

The seeming irreverence for the distinctions between the sacred and the profane, high art and commercial design reflects Warhol’s inevitable transformation of a deeply religious work into a cliché whose profound message has become muted through repetition.

Eerily prescient, The Last Supper was to be the last project of Warhol’s life. His sudden and unexpected death, just one month after the exhibition opened in Milan.

I create small studies like Last Supper in preparation for a finished piece or just as visual notes. I often use my small studies to understand the problems involved in rendering subjects and to plan the elements to be used in finished works, such as light, color, form, perspective and composition.

These small studies are exclusively available through my shop and blog. All studies are signed on the reverse.

Shipping takes about two weeks no matter where you live in the world. Price includes shipping and handling. You'll receive your painting safely packaged and ready to frame.
